Dr. Lee is the Director of the Dermatological Center for Skin Health with expertise in complicated skin rashes and skin cancer. She treats her private patients at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica.  She is also the Chief of Dermatology and Residency Program Director at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, California. 


Under Dr. Lee’s direction, investigators on her team at the Lundquist Institute are respected researchers whose expertise extend well beyond cancer, allowing them to draw parallels between the inappropriate immune responses causing diseases: both cancer and non-cancerous.  A key focus of her laboratory is to investigate how microbes and other small molecules affect antitumor immune responses and autoimmunity/autoinflammation. Research involves cutting edge basic science and computational techniques to study and manipulate the immune system in melanoma, breast cancer, and other inflammatory skin conditions.
